Emancipatory Rural Politics Initiative: Small Grants Winners
The Emancipatory Rural Politics Initiative (ERPI) 2017-2018 Small Grants Competition received more than 400 applications from all over the world. The winners were announced in September 2017.
The Emancipatory Rural Politics Initiative (ERPI) is a new initiative focused on understanding the contemporary moment and building alternatives. New exclusionary politics are generating deepening inequalities, jobless ‘growth’, climate chaos, and social division. The ERPI is focused on the social and political processes in rural spaces that are generating alternatives to regressive, authoritarian politics. We aim to provoke debate and action among scholars, activists, practitioners and policymakers from across the world that are concerned about the current situation, and hopeful about alternatives.
